Hebrews 11:7 (ESV)
Heroes of Faith
7 By faith Noah, being warned by
God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
you imagine God talking to you and telling you to build an ark where there is no water? The task is going to make you the laughing stock of the area. The ark was to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. Would you build something
that is going to make you look like a fool to everyone around you. Noah set aside the peer pressure of the world and responded to God’s calling to build an ark. Everyone else perished while Noah, his wife, his three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth,
along with their wives (8 people in all), lived.
I pray: O Lord, it is so easy to be influenced by the world, but you don’t want us to be of this world. We are a new creation, help us to
trust in you for our salvation and to follow your ways. Help us to not succumb to peer pressure and ruled by what others think. Guide us Lord to the greener pastures in heaven. Amen.
